Drawing at the provocative fresh paintings of feminist theorist Luce Irigaray, Irigaray, Incarnation and modern Women's Fiction illuminates the very important and subversive function of literature in rewriting notions of the sacred. Abigail Rine demonstrates via cautious readings how a number of modern ladies writers - from Margaret Atwood to Michèle Roberts and Alice Walker – imagine past conventional spiritual discourse and masculine types of subjectivity in the direction of a brand new version of the sacred: one who seeks to reconcile the schism among the human and the divine, among the physique and the be aware. alongside the way in which, the e-book argues that literature is the fitting area for rethinking faith, accurately since it is a realm that cultivates mind's eye, secret and incarnation.
